Handbook of Management Scales/Alliance portfolio coordination
Alliance portfolio coordination (alpha = 0.91, AVE = 0.72)
An alliance management capability measure was conceptualized and operationalized. It is reflected by five underlying routines: interorganizational coordination, alliance portfolio coordination, interorganizational learning, alliance proactiveness, and alliance transformation.
Alliance portfolio coordination pertains to the routines related to the integration of all of a business unit’s R&D alliances.
- We ensure an appropriate coordination among the activities of our different R&D alliances.
- We determine areas of synergy in our R&D alliance portfolio.
- We ensure that interdependencies between our R&D alliances are identified.
- We determine if there are overlaps between our different R&D alliances.
